William Barker Daniel was an English cleric and writer on field sports in the late 1700s. His work on rural sports became a hit with sportsmen. He indulged in sporting tastes to a degree which shocked even a tolerant age. A correspondent in the Gentleman's Magazine of 1802 wrote of him as "fitter to act the character of Nimrod than that of a dignitary in the church of England" (Nimrod was a mighty hunter in the bible). These finely detailed engravings show some of his favourite sporting scenes and animals. They are genuine antiques, brilliantly detailed and were made in 1801.
